Impromptu trip to Genting yesterday & got to try Burger & Lobster at Level 1, SkyAvenue, Genting Highlands & it was alright…
Over-hyped & underwhelming, IMHO.
Ambiance was ok, although Genting tend to get really rowdy sometimes. There’s a bit of queue, as expected, but it wasn’t too long (~20 mins).
The Lobster (!!!) and Burger
I ordered The Original Canadian Lobster (RM 168), steamed with BL’s famous lemon & garlic butter.
Hubby got The Original Australian 224g Beef Burger (RM 88), while the boy got The Mayfair 168g burger (RM 68).
My drink under ‘Soft Shell’ part of the menu basically means the drink comes in a fancy metal holder of a mamak-style plastic bag & straw. Mine was Time Keeper (RM 24) – black tea, calamansi lime, kafir line leaf, palm sugar.
Menu & Pricing
I have to say, it’s a real skinny menu. Not much choices here but 3 types of Burgers, 3 types of Lobsters and 3 types of Lobster Rolls. And yeah – 3 types of desserts. That’s about it!
Upset that there’s no kids menu.
There is a Bar Bites menu of sliders, truffle fries etc, but we weren’t allowed to order it to be consumed at our table, only at the bar counter. A bit silly, no?!
So had to order a full adult size burger for the 3yo, who obviously can’t finish. There’s no real appetizers menu to order from as well. 🙄
The steamed lobster was ok. Not quite the freshest or the most delicious I’ve ever had. The BL’s garlic and lemon sauce was ok. Shoulda ordered the clarified butter sauce instead.
Hubby’s not a lobster fan, but he did enjoy his burger. So, that’s a positive, I guess.
Overall, food was mediocre. Better than Red Lobster (coz they suck) and about the same as Steaks & Lobsters in Hartamas. Checked this place off our list, but probably won’t come again.
Definitely not worth the queue and wait. There are so many more restaurant choices in SkyAvenue Genting now, anyways. It’s a whole shopping mall / amusement park here in Genting now.
Perhaps the London branch had better food. ☹️
